Where's our dam approval?
Moose Cree First Nation, Tembec Inc. and SNC-Lavalin are expecting to modernize four hydroelectric dams on the Mattagami River, which promises to generate 384 megawatts of additional energy.
The proposed project would create approximately 350 jobs in a variety of areas, including construction and technical expertise, a much-needed jump-start for the Moose Cree First Nation community, where unemployment is high. The intent is to make the reserve fully self-sufficient, says an elder from the community.
